7:07 am
his daughters kathy and le and his attorney mark brewster. thank you for joining us. >> good morning, matt. >> mr. bates, i want to talk about your training and your training records in a second. but i want you to take me back to april 2nd, the day this all happened. you were not supposed to be actively involved in the arrest of mr. harris. you were supposed to provide support from several blocks away, but you did get involved in the struggle. you write in your written statement that you were not sure whether he was armed and you say that you saw, quote, a brief opening to use your taser to subdue him. take me back to that moment. >> matt, i was actually parked down the street at a sinclair station several blocks away from where the activity took place. in other words, the drug buy of dope and the gun purchased. he decided to bolt from the undercover's truck and run and he came to me. i had two other cars that were
7:08 am
in front. i was the last car, as i always am. i carry the equipment that the deputies use to clear a scene, whatever. i've been involved in several hundred of these. i do clean up when they're done. i take notes. i take photographs. and that's my job. >> and when you got involved in this struggle, mr. bates, did any of the other deputies or officers say help us? tase him? use your taser? >> no, matt. i yelled "taser, taser" as required in training. the deputy below me ducked, he pulled away from it so that i could. now, i've never, you know -- first and foremost, let me apologize to the family of eric harris. you know, this is the second worst thing that's ever happened to me or first that ever happened to me in my life. i had cancer a number of years ago.
7:09 am
i didn't think i was going to get there. luckily, i was able to go to a hospital where i had hours of surgery. i'd rate this as number one on my list of things in my life that i regret. >> let me ask you to do this. would you stand up for me for one second and show me where on your body when you are in your uniform you keep your taser and where you keep your weapon, your revolver? can you stand up and show me? >> sure. you bet. my taser is right here on the front tucked in a productive vest. my gun itself is on my side, normally to the rear. >> and people are going to look at that, mr. bates, and say how could you make this mistake? how could you think you were going for your taser on your chest tucked into that vest and accidentally pull your weapon? country. i have read about it in the
7:10 am
past. i thought to myself after reading several cases, i don't understand how this can happen. you must believe me, it can happen to anyone. >> you yelled taser, taser. you mentioned the other deputy ducked and cleared so you could use your taser. and then you heard that gunshot. what were you thinking when you heard the shot? >> oh, my god. what has happened. the laser light is the same on each weapon. i saw the light and i squeezed the trigger. and then realized and dropped the gun. this was not an intentional thing. i have no desire to ever take anyone's life. >> you can be heard on that tape saying i shot him, i'm sorry. and there's a lot of emotion in your voice. what was the emotion? was it sorrow? was it shock? was it fear for the repercussions of what you had just done? >> matt, i never considered the
7:11 am
repercussions of what i had just done. it was shock. i'm not at all sure it's not still with me today. lack of sleep, inability to concentrate, all of those plus more. you know, i still can't believe it happened. >> mr. bates, in the wake of this incident, you have been portrayed as a wealthy and generous supporter of the sheriff's department and a close friend of the sheriff who has been rewarded for your financial support with the opportunity and this is what's out there, to play cop and carry a gun. is that a fair characterization? >> that is unbelievably unfair. i have donated equipment as i saw fit. when the need happened to arise to allow the task force and other areas of the sheriff's
7:12 am
office to better do their jobs on the street of tulsa. tulsa has a drug problem. there is no question. nobody argues that. i am willing to put up equipment to assist them, to better educate the public. i deal with young people all the time, matt. 13 and 14-year-old kids using heroin. you know, i talk to them once we're done and try to gain an understanding of, you know, why. why has this happened. i was a policeman in tulsa and there wasn't heroin. that was in new york city, chicago problem. not here. >> let me get back to this story now that's been reported by the tulsa world based on anonymous sources and by the way unconfirmed by nbc news, that supervisors in the sheriff's department were ordered to falsify your training records and give you credit for field training and firearm certification that you did not
7:13 am
deserve. how do you respond to those allegations? >> that is not correct. i have a written piece of paper that a mr. warren crittenden now in jail had signed off to say i had done a good job. you know, the law firm has been most interesting. they seem to represent all the people that have been terminated by the sheriff's office -- >> without getting off on a tangent, you did the training and you can prove that you were certified? >> that is absolutely the truth. i have it in writing. >> matt, if i may address this briefly, that point. the so-called evidence of falsified training records comes from a person that was terminated by the sheriff's
7:14 am
office seven years ago. he signed an affidavit. mr. bates would have been with the department as a reserve just about a half a year or a year at that time. so seven years ago that's their evidence. and he is a person represented by the firm that's representing the family and he has a year ago been charged with first degree murder. so the credibility of the witnesses should have been -- or that particular witness should have been weighed carefully by press outlets before running that story. >> mr. bates, let me end on this. you've been charged with second degree manslaughter. you face up to four years in prison. have you allowed yourself to think about that possibility? >> certainly. how could i not? >> robert bates, mr. brewster and the bates family, thank you for your time this morning. and of course we will be following this story. >> you're welcome. all right. meantime, alaska airlines is now banning the baggage handler who

8:52 am
>> very close. >> oh! >> the shrimp only takes a minute or two to cook. you want them sort of pink. we're going to throw everything back in the skillet at the end. so you want just a minute or two on each side. and so they sort of curl. i can't believe you just did that by the way. >> it's still in my hat. i'm going to keep it there all day. >> all right. >> then we're going to add everything back together. these are japanese udon noodles. >> these are cooked? >> cooked. we're going to put everything back in here in the skillet. >> did it take you awhile to figure out how to recreate the flavor? >> you know after going there maybe 45 times and every celebratory meal ever you get the -- >> she's like the norm and cliff of benny hannah. when she walks in they go bingo!

9:07 am
yep that's all you care about is just taking people's money. with no education, no skill set. just wanted to to clarify that. do you feel good about your job? so i could be a college dropout and do the same thing? why because i have a brain and you don't? >> don't say that. >> maybe if i was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh? oh like yours because they look so stunning. because i'm on television and you're in a [ bleep ] trailer, honey. lose some weight baby girl. >> espn suspended her for one week. she did apologize on twitter. this is part of it. in an intense and stressful moment i allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things. as frustrated as i was, i should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. i will learn from this mistake.
9:08 am
we spoke to someone in mchenry's camp who says the tape can be edited. and it doesn't show the complete version of events. but either way this person said they're not justifying her actions, they just want you to know it may have been moving around a bit. >> what is moved around? >> maybe her reaction is to something else that was said. >> so they're saying the woman caused her to react that way? >> they're not justifying it. >> and there is no justification. whether or not she knew there was a camera recording which she did because the employee said it but still. you don't talk to people like that. >> you can express frustration. my goodness i'm so mad my car got towed. but the poor lady she's doing her job. then you start talking about her physical appearance. and economic situation. her education. and in her tweet apology, maybe she has apologized to the worker i don't know. but at least in the tweet, i don't know it's 140 characters but it would have been nice to see one saying by the way i did
9:09 am
apologize to this woman. she's a human being. it is hurtful. >> i was riding my bike yesterday. i was at a bike and i heard something just foul language just berating somebody on a customer service line on the other end. forget about treating people with respect and as human beings. do you think that's going to really help you? >> that's what i say. >> with what you're looking for? >> when you see that kind of behavior do you feel a responsibility to do anything about it? to call people out a little bit? because we're doing a whole "dateline" series about this coming up. it's hard. if you see somebody being abusive to say something. >> physically abusive, i think i would. my mother says i have this savior complex. if i say something the next thing it's escalated to why are you talking to that person way. and if they are aggressive then it picks up. physical i'm going to help anyone. >> when i've been on the subway
9:10 am
and heard kids using foul language i say do you really want to use that? and they tell me to blank off. >> and you just walk away. >> but you know maybe they'll think about it when they get home. they'll say you know that jerk al roker. >> your point, do you think someone will respond in a helpful way when you're attacking them? if she's upset about her car tow towed away be l that help the situation? >> no. >> but we're all in that situation where you get to a point you just feel like you can't take it anymore but you don't treat people like that. >> we're all human. this next story shows that. pat mccrory. >> we're behind. i'm with duke university. >> excuse me. that was on camera. ta-da! >> yes.
